comment Why hasn't Russia maintained significant numbers of Aircraft carriers?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a counter-factual incapable of historical evaluation. Ask instead about what Soviet naval strategy was.

comment At which point in time did the majority of German population become aware of the Holocaust?
Read some more about their actions, the Wehrmacht support dedicated to actions in 1941, and the continuing and widespread use of police battalion and Wehrmacht troops to support or primarily conduct anti-partisan, ie: Jew hunting, operations 1941-1945. As I said, your answer contains a factual inaccuracy of gross proportions in its first sentence.

This answer is wrong in fact in the first sentence as any study of einsatzgruppen and anti-partisan documentation would indicate.

comment Pre-1950s views of West European Socialist parties on the welfare state
I'd only be doing the same thing, comparing programmes to programmes. By late 1914 people were aware that programmes weren't actions. Getting into the nittygritty of state aid resistance by social-democrat aligned workers pre 1939 and post 1945 is beyond me.
